Police in Indiana Searching for Missing Toddler Shaylyn Ammerman

by Rachael Trost

A massive search is underway as multiple law enforcement agencies investigate the disappearance of a toddler last seen late Tuesday at her father's home in Spencer, Indiana.

 Shaylyn Ammerman, who will be 15 months old next week, was reportedly last seen around midnight. Tamera Morgan, Shaylyn's grandmother, who lives at the home with the girl's father, told police she put her to bed around 10:30 p.m. then checked on her around midnight.

"She was laying in her bed sound asleep and then we went to bed and we woke up, and she was gone," Morgan told NBC affiliate WTHR.

Investigators say they are speaking with several people they've referred to as "persons of interest" along with other witnesses. More than 50 additional officers have also been deployed to the area to assist local police.

FBI now involved in case of missing Spencer girl as massive search effort continues
POSTED 7:51 AM, MARCH 24, 2016, BY KYLE INSKEEP, MATT ADAMS - WEB PRODUCER AND JESSE WELLS, UPDATED AT 07:36PM, MARCH 24, 2016

 
During a Thursday afternoon briefing, Sgt. Curt Durnil said the massive search for 14-month-old Shaylyn Ammerman included search dogs, cadaver dogs, sonar and personnel from multiple law enforcement agencies. He also said the Federal Bureau of Investigation was involved in the case.

Rain made search efforts more difficult Thursday, but Durnil said search teams wouldn’t be deterred. He also said two or three polygraph tests were administered Thursday, including one for the girl’s father. Durnil said investigators were worried about her.

“A child is missing, and the house where the child is missing from is right over the White River,” Durnil said. “We’re not leaving any stone unturned in this case.

“She’s been missing over 24 hours. We’re worried. It’s not good right now.”

Durnil said the search “won’t end until we find Shaylyn.” No arrests have been made, although Durnil said there were seven to ten persons of interest that investigators wanted to talk to. He also clarified that the case didn’t meet criteria for an Amber Alert because there was no vehicle or suspect description available.

Investigators said Shaylyn was last seen at her father’s home in the 400 block of West Jefferson Street in Spencer Tuesday night. Search efforts expanded Thursday.'
 
Shaylyn’s father, Justin Ammerman, told police his mother put the child down for bed just before midnight Tuesday and when he woke up Tuesday morning his daughter was gone.

According to Shaylyn's mother, Jessica Stewart, the girl's father was having a party Tuesday evening. Ammerman says that’s not true and he believes someone entered through the front door of the house and kidnapped her.

“Either somebody has a really, really big grudge over us or something, because I don’t see anybody in this town ever doing something like this,” Ammerman said. “Whoever has my daughter, return her please.”

Stewart does not believe his story.

“He shows really no emotion. That is why I think that he is hiding something and I know when he is lying,” said Stewart.
“I don’t honestly think that he would hurt her purposely, I think he would not know what to do if it happened,” said Shaylyn’s grandmother Carol Stewart.

Shaylyn was reported missing to authorities in Owen County around 9 a.m. Wednesday. Investigators also served multiple search warrants in connection to this case.

This is so sad.  I think the father will be the next to be arrested.  I'm sure he knew.

The girl was reported missing Wednesday morning. Shaylyn's father and grandmother, Justin Ammerman and Tamera Morgan, were the last people known to have seen the child around midnight Tuesday. She'd been staying at the father's home about 50 miles southwest of Indianapolis under a joint custody arrangement with the girl's mother.

The girl’s uncle, Adam Ammerman, told the station Parker had been drinking at the home on the night Shaylyn vanished.

"We do know he was in the house that night, but we don’t know where his whereabouts were, we cannot draw a map right now of what happened when he left that house," Indiana State Police Sgt. Curt Durnil told Fox59

Indiana man charged with rape, murder in 1-year-old’s death
POSTED 10:49 AM, MARCH 28, 2016, BY TRIBUNE MEDIA WIRE, UPDATED AT 12:05PM, MARCH 28, 2016

SPENCER, Ind. -– An Indiana man accused in the death of 1-year-old Shaylyn Ammerman faces additional charges in connection with the case, according to WXIN.

Kyle Parker, 22, is due in court Monday afternoon. Online records show Parker is charged with rape, murder, child molesting, kidnapping, strangulation and aggravated battery in the case.

Last week, Parker was arrested on charges of obstruction of justice, failure to report a dead body and unlawful disposition of a body.

Police took Parker into custody on Thursday, the same day they found the 14-month-old’s body near the White River in Gosport. An autopsy showed the girl died from asphyxiation.

Parker was at the Ammerman home the night Shaylyn disappeared. Her family reported her missing Wednesday morning. Her father said his mother put Shaylyn to bed late Tuesday; when they woke up in the morning, she was gone.

The family said Parker initially said he didn’t know anything about Shaylyn’s disappearance.

“You know that you did it and then be so straight, and calm, and cool and just lie for a day. A whole 24 hours of lying, when you knew where that baby was,” said Tammy Morgan, Shaylyn’s grandmother.

 

Shaylyn's funeral is scheduled for Wednesday.

Mugshot of Kyle Parker

 

Kyle Parker, 22, appeared in court Monday afternoon. He asked the court to appoint an attorney and pleaded not guilty in the case. Online records show Parker is charged with rape, murder, child molesting, kidnapping, strangulation and aggravated battery in the case, in addition to obstruction of justice and failure to report a dead body.

Police took Parker into custody on Thursday, the same day they found the 14-month-old’s body near the White River in Gosport. An autopsy showed the girl died from asphyxiation.

Parker was at the Ammerman home the night Shaylyn disappeared. Her family reported her missing Wednesday morning. Her father said his mother put Shaylyn to bed late Tuesday; when they woke up in the morning, she was gone. Her disappearance set off a massive search for the little girl involving multiple law enforcement agencies.

Court documents released Monday showed Parker abducted and raped the girl; he then attempted to pin it on one of her family members, using bleach on the girl’s body and his own in an attempt to destroy evidence. A medical examiner said this was “the worst case of sexual trauma she had seen in her career.”

The night of Shaylyn’s disappearance

Several people were at the Ammerman home in Spencer on Tuesday night, including the girl’s father, Justin Ammerman; his brother, Adam Ammerman; and Ammerman’s mother, Tammy Morgan.

In addition, officers were told a friend of Adam Ammerman “had also spent the night but left during the night at an unknown time. The friend was only identified as Kyle at the present time and was driving a maroon Pontiac Grand Am,” court documents said.

Justin Ammerman said he went to bed around 11 p.m., about an hour after his mother, Tammy Morgan, put Shaylyn in her crib. Shortly after Ammerman went to bed, he said his brother, Adam, and a friend, Kyle Parker, invited him to drink with them. Justin Ammerman said he declined and went to bed.

When he woke up Wednesday morning, he couldn’t find Shaylyn and went to see if she was with his mother. He then called 911. He asked his brother to walk around the house to see if she was in the yard.

When Kyle Parker left the house

Ammerman said Parker was gone when he woke up; his brother, Adam, said Parker had left around 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. on Wednesday.

Adam Ammerman said he and Parker went to the liquor store to buy alcohol on Tuesday. Around 3 or 4 a.m. Wednesday, he said he heard the sound of the front door shutting. He realized Parker was gone; he looked outside the window to see Parker “walking away from the house” and “carrying something.” He yelled goodbye to Parker, but Parker didn’t turn around.

Adam Ammerman said he “thought he saw a foot dangling from Kyle (Parker’s) side but was not certain so he went back to bed.”

A disturbing history

Adam Ammerman told investigators that his mother walked into the house one day and found Parker, who was intoxicated, sitting in a rocking chair and holding Shalyn in his lap. When Tammy Morgan asked Adam about Parker’s interests, he said “Kyle preferred to watch pornographic movies which featured people being spanked.”

Friends of Parker said he “drank a lot” and would “often get naked when drunk.” They also said Parker was “attracted to younger girls in the 12- to 14-year-old range.”

Parker’s first interview

When interviewed by police, Parker said he left the Ammerman home around 12:30 a.m. or 1:35 a.m. on Wednesday. He recalled Adam Ammerman leaning out of a window to say goodbye and then said he drove to a friend’s house. He said he sat in their garage and listened to music until his friends woke up in the morning for work. They let him in around 3:20 a.m., he claimed.

Parker had told his stepsister’s mother that he planned to stay the night at the Ammerman residence. Parker told police he intended to do that, but changed his mind. He said he “just did not feel like spending the night” when asked why he left the home.

Parker had numerous scratches on his forearms and hands that appeared to be fresh injuries, court documents said. He claimed they were from cats at his house and insisted they were older wounds.

Locating Shaylyn’s body

Parker’s stepfather called police on Wednesday night to say Parker was willing to cooperate. When asked if he was involved in Shaylyn’s disappearance, Parker didn’t answer directly, but he did nod “in an affirmative response.” He initially declined to lead investigators to her body, but later agreed to show them the location on a map.

Parker “stated that the location was east of Gosport and it was off of an access road that ran north and south” between the railroad tracks and Indian Creek.

Parker “advised Shaylyn’s body was on the side of the tree that faces the road.” He said it was “too dark for him to determine if Shaylyn was clothed but he did not believe so.”

Attempting to shift the blame

Parker said he didn’t carry Shaylyn, but another man did, saying it was either “Adam or Justin Ammerman but he would not tell which one.”

Parker said authorities “shouldn’t find any of his DNA on Shaylyn’s body.” He tried to pin the girl’s death on Adam Ammerman, court documents said, though investigators said they didn’t believe him, informing him that Adam Ammerman had passed a polygraph test.

When investigators found the girl’s body, they also discovered a burn pile nearby that may contain her clothes and other evidence.

Mike Patton, Parker’s stepfather, said his stepson told him “the police would have the truth once they found Shaylyn’s body and the DNA with it.” Patton said he “knew right then that Kyle had taken Shaylyn and raped and killed her,” court documents said.

‘Worst case of sexual trauma’

An autopsy showed the girl died from asphyxiation; the injuries all over her body were consistent with a sexual assault. Dr. Donna Stewart, who performed the autopsy at the Kentucky Medical Examiner’s Office in Louisville, Ky., told investigators that this was “the worst case of sexual trauma she had seen in her career.”

The girl suffered multiple hemorrhages to her face and had a laceration on the upper left lip and a contusion on the lower left lip. She “suffered from multiple cutaneous abrasions and contusions to multiple body regions” in addition to severe trauma to her private areas.

A stepson’s confession

Parker’s stepfather called police on Sunday to inform them that Parker had confessed to the crime. Patton said he “could not live with himself if he did not tell” investigators what happened.

Patton said Parker confirmed he’d acted alone in Shaylyn’s death and disappearance. She was alive and dressed when he took her from the home. He put her in his car and drove until he pulled over to the side of the road and raped her; he then smothered her with “some type of cloth that he already had in the vehicle,” court documents said.

Parker poured bleach on Shaylyn’s body in order to conceal any traces of his DNA, Parker told his stepfather, and also used bleach to wipe down his own body. He then burned her clothes and pacifier; he told his stepfather that he hoped he would create “reasonable doubt by using the bleach to destroy DNA and confuse the investigators by accusing a family member.”

Parker said he hoped that would be enough to prevent charges from being filed in the case.
